Had lunch at this place recently and found it to be ok not great and frankly over-rated. Some old Denverites love this place as an icon of mex food with great green chili. I am not one of those though. I had a Mexican hamburger with green chili. The green chili, to me, was just ok. There is better in... More

It seems like this place is a bit of a Denver icon, but I can't really figure out why. The food is decent, the green chili is actually pretty good but not spectacular. I do like the crisp chili relleno a lot, but it doesn't like me quite as much!! Overall fun place with decent food.

My neighbors love this place. They love the green chili, the chili rellenos, and the margaritas. I however, like to identify the food I'm eating instead of having everything buried under sauce. The place is a dive, and those who love it will be glad if you stay away. If you go, you can have my spot!

I am a Denver native and have sampled every Green Chili in the state. Colorado is known for our Mexican food being served with a spicy sauce usually made with a pork base called Green Chili and I live on it. Brewery Bar has the #1 chili in the state, bar none. The menu has a popular combo plate called... More

The Brewery Bar II was my first hole in the wall Mexican restaurant I visited when I moved to Denver in 1994. I probably upped the rating a little because I like hole in the wall Mexican joints. Their claim to fame is their green chile stew. If you like it hot this is the place for you. I like... More

Looks can be deceiving as this hole-in-the-wall serves some of the best authentic Mexican food around! Great food, super service & fairly priced. Highly recommend!

I started going here when I lived in Denver. Have been going since 1978. Now, it is a HAVE TO visit when I return to Denver. I always order the smother chili relleno and a cup of half and half chili. I could eat it all at one time. These days, though, it is a good meal plus 2 more... More

They have been serving Colorado-style Mexican food for a long time. Be sure to try their green chili. Watch for specials. A local favorite.

whenever I visit my sister in Denver a stop at Brewery Bar II is a MUST stop. Now living in the eastern US you just can't fine great (or even so so) the Green Chile. I always get the 1/2 and 1/2 - oh so good - hey I recommend that they offer mail order service - I'd be a... More

Stopped in with the GF today before doing some antiquing on Broadway. Had the ground beef and bean burrito smother with green chili. I ordered the half mild half hot and was glad I didn't go full hot. We sat at the bar since it was crowded and the service and food were both excellent.
